I pretty much see this being the main way people consume TV in the future. As much as people claim to want a la carte, I think more people prefer a single app and interface for all their channels instead hopping between each network's app. Also, the content providers force the bundles on the distributors. You want NBC? You have to take USA, SyFy, MSNBC, etc.
